comment is it mandatory to keep 72 dpi for web design? What if I create in 200dpi?
Where/how/why do gradients change? (Maybe we should discuss this elsewhere? The document DPI/PPI is just a tag.

Gradients are fine, it's all about the way Photoshop handles layer styles and how appearance changes as you copy or move elements between documents — it scales them according to document DPI (which is a smart move, but means you have to be very careful). If you're designing for web, the best option is to set everything to 72DPI, always.

Great reply. One minor point, if that's ok: “It doesn't make any difference what ppi setting you use for web images” — Definitely true for the images themselves, but occasionally it can matter for the tools (please see my reply).

Hmm. That definitely seems scriptable. It could be insanely good.

I've just tried, and unfortunately I wasn't able to create an action for it. Imagine if you could run an action to apply changes to similar layers. I'd like that.

Just added another suggestion from @visual28 on Twitter. It's a good one.

comment Mysterious line next to shape after saving for web in Illustrator
Dragging the object off the artboard then repositioning is a terrible work around for ~$1000 software. Have you sent feedback to Adobe?
